I had my first visit with Dr. Mills this past week…I was very pleased with the office staff and staff member who helped me with insurance coverage and showed me what the costs were to be after insurance…Dr. Mills seemed to be a very pleasant Dr. although I didn’t talk with him very long…he explained my options on what needed to be done and all with no pressure…I told him I would think about the information he and the office staff gave me…I had several xrays taken and they were all done quickly…all in all I was very pleased with my visit and will definitely be returning to have work done… I do have one suggestion for Dr. Mills…that he introduce himself when coming in to meet a new patient…thanks

If you’re looking for a very skilled dental staff, these people are it. I went in for my first appointment yesterday and they had to pull my wisdom tooth. They got it done really fast and pain free. If I could give Dr. Mills and his staff more than 5 stars, I would. Keep up the excellent work and I’m looking forward to my next appointment with you.

There are very few words needed. Top notch in every area and since I have been going to Southport Dental my hygiene is solid. Perfection when getting my teeth cleaned helps carry over to my daily dental health. The employees are what makes this place 5 Stars. All good leaders surround themselves with greatness so that is all that needs to be said about Dr. Mills.

Nora H. from Greenwood, IN (Source: Yelp)


this is a whole FIVE STARS because this place has some of the best staff. the two up front workers are KILLING THE GAME and the same with the back workers. i have absolutely NO complaints about this place because it is just amazing. the paintings and the pictures make the place more fun to come to. kids even have their own area to play and watch TV! the staff is nothing but nice to the patients even if the patients are a bit rude. dr. mills has an amazing office and i can’t wait to go back to see all of the workers smiling faces. truly amazing.

The dental assistant was the best part of my visit. She told me step by step what was going to happen and how I would feel. She used to be in the rodeo and I thought that was pretty cool. The dentist was telling me how great of a rodeo girl she was wrestle the calves to tie them up. That was actually a joke but the reason I tell you that is because they made me feel comfortable as they knew I don’t like going to the dentist. They are pros and my teeth look great with my new crown and filling

Top notch dentistry. The hygienist is gentle, knowledgeable and friendly. She let me know what she was observing and getting ready to do while working on my mouth. I appreciated her encouragement and candor. She put me at ease, unlike many dental visits I’ve endured through the years. Dr. Mills is a hoot. Have fun and don’t forget to floss.

Ryan B. from Martinsville, IN (Source: Yelp)


I am normally terrified of dentist, The last few dentist I went to were horrible and painful, all around a terrible experience that made me have a phobia of dentist. I told him all about the past experiences and he understood why i was leery of dentist and told me it will not be like that here. He was right! He’s the best dentist I have ever been to. I have been going to him for a couple of years now and have never had a painful experience or problem. I’ve had fillings, tooth extractions, and a few other things done and it all went as smooth as it possibly could have went. Bottom line is he is a great dentist and the staff is great too.

Its a clean office that looks modern but has cool paintings with dinosaurs which my boys love. Office staff is friendly and ontop of things. I have a special needs son and they were awesome with him to the point he enjoyed his visit so much I know it wont be a problem going back. Consistently always do an all around great job!:)

I LOVE the care I receive at Southport Dental!!!! My Dental technician is Christy. She is a sweet-heart with a great sense of humor. She gives great dental care in prep for Dr Ryan Mills final check. Then Dr Mills gives the final check, asks how I’m doing and usually tells me a fun true story upon my request, I love that!! They are a great team! I also love it that as soon as I walk in, the receptionist always says “Hi Mary”, with a smile. I never have to tell her who I am 🙂

Lora P. from Greenwood, IN (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Mills’ office is always clean and comfortable when I’ve gone in for my regular cleanings.  The front office staff is always polite.  I have had Katie as my hygienist for several cleanings and she always does a great job.  Dr. Mills is personable when checking teeth after cleanings.  I would definitely recommend Southport Dental to anyone that is looking for a new dentist!

Jimmy B. from Indianapolis, IN (Source: Yelp)


We recently moved about 30 min away from this office but continue to go there because of the people and service. This office is ran better than any other dentist office I have gone to and they always make you feel comfortable. I would recommend giving them a try if you are looking for a good dentist in the area.

I have been a patient of Southport Dental for about 4 years now. I also take my 4 year old son there. All of the staff are always friendly and smiley. The staff and Dr. Mills are really good with my son. He LOVES going to the dentist! He frequently asks if he can go to the dentist to get his teeth cleaned. I never have to wait long for my appointment. They are very good at explaining things from dental care, to billing. The office is always clean and tidy, including the bathroom! Overall, it is a very pleasant experience going to the dentist.

Daniel G. from Indianapolis, IN (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Mills and his whole staff are amazing every visit from start to finish. They take the time to talk and actually care about how your life is going. They do a great job and take pride on any work they do for your teeth. The office is always clean, and the appointments are usually close to right on time. I live in the north side of town now, but come down south for dentist just because I did not want to leave this office. I would defijitly recommend Southport Dental.

Nicole J. from Indianapolis, IN (Source: Yelp)


Dr.Mills has cared for my smile a while now and I’m very satisfied! Unfortunately as oral health goes, when I do need to come in everyone is pleasant and upbeat. I have never had to wait longer than 5min of my scheduled appt.  I love the e-mail and text reminders I get for my appointments.  Also, Dr. Scott Mills is the “only” dentist I’ve ever been to that did not hurt while numbing my jaw!! #winning

Jessica W. from Indianapolis, IN (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Mills has been my dentist since I moved to Indy over 6 years ago. Even though my husband and I now live more north of the city, I have remained a client. The staff is SO friendly and professional! My experience there has always been positive, and the wait times are within reason. I have only ever needed to go to the dentist for my semi-annual appointments, but I know if I needed to go more frequently for other services they offer, that I would feel at ease. For every appointment, I have gone to Katie and she is so friendly and kind. I am always impressed by how Dr. Mills and his staff are not only friendly and professional, but they take the time to get to know you and truly seem to care about their clients. I have referred friends and family to Southport Dental, and I will absolutely continue to do so!

I hate going to the dentist..I’ve never gone regularly until I discovered this place!! Christy is by far the most gentle hygienist I have ever had in my mouth 🙂 It’s always an argument who gets her in our family! Thank you, Dr. Mills, for being quick & efficient…and for staffing such friendly gals! Lindsey always greets with big smiles!

Cheri G. from Indianapolis, IN (Source: Yelp)


Whole family can enter into to this office with no fear or anxiety. They present themselves with professionalism and joy. The service that you receive is top notch. I wish I knew how to post before and after pictures. I had a really bad experience through another dentist. I came to Dr. Mills office with fear, anxiety and a mess in my mouth. He cleared it all up and gave me a lot of great advice. They always make sure you are aware of cost, what they will be doing and what you should expect the outcome to be with honesty. Love this office and so do my 26 and 23 year old sons. I would HIGHLY recommend it to everyone.

We have had many dentists in this family, until recently referred to Dr. Mills & Southport Dental. The Dr. calmed my child’s fears and reassured us while administering fantastic dental care. Dr. Mills’ dental expertise, coupled with his sensitive approach, made my child comfortable and at ease. I am grateful for this professional partner in our oral health.

I usually see Christy for my cleanings. She is amazing! I, like most have always been nervous and apprehensive about dental appointments. Not anymore! I enjoy my visits now, and after 8 years of not going, I’m glad I started! My teeth and gums are in much better shape. Christy and Dr. Mills are so gentle and fun that it makes it easy to return. Thanks Southport Dental. CLIENT FOR LIFE!!!

Emily G. from New Whiteland, IN (Source: Yelp)


I absolutely love the Southport Dental crew! My mom recommended them to me, and I always recommend them to my friends and family in the area. Customer service is very important to me, and from the moment I walk in, the receptionist has a bright smile on her face and welcomes me in! The hygenists and technicians are thorough, and they get me in and out in no time! Dr. Ryan Mills is wonderful. He listens to any questions or concerns that I may have about my teeth/jaw, and he does a great job explaining all of my options. I’ve always dreaded going to the dentist, but the providers at Southport Dental ensure that I am comfortable and have a pleasant experience.(And I always do!). I am so glad to have a Dental team that I can count on!

I used to have bad anxiety when going to the dentists; base on really bad experiences on the past. When I went for the first time;  Dr. Mills and staff where amazing!!!!! The first appointment:  they work with me throughout my anxiety attacks, they where patient and waited into I was calm and relax to finish the job. They always treated me with kindness, respect and compassion; and they always validate my feelings with their empathy!! After my first appointment I felt I could trust them because they definitely took great care of me!!! Thanks to them, I not longer have anxiety when I need to go to the  dentists!!! I definitely recommend Southport Dental a thousand times!!!       Solia tener muy mala ansiedad cuando iva al dentista; basado en muy malas experiencias del pasado. Cuando fui por la primers vez, el Dr. Mills y su personal fueron maravillosos!!! La primera cita: Ellos trabajaron con migo durante mi ataques de ansiedad, Ellos fueron pacientes y esperaban que me calmara y me relajara para terminar el trabajo. Ellos siempre me trataron con amabilidad, respeto, y compasion; ellos todo el tiempo validaron mis sentimientos con su empatia!! Despues de mi primera cita senti que podia confiar en ellos por que definitivamente me trataron estupendo!!! Gracias a ellos, yo ya no tengo ansiedad cuando tengo que ir al dentista!!!

Dr. Ryan Mills and his staff are very comforting and compassionate. My visit wasn’t what I expected do to more issues going on than I anticipated but Dr. Mills assured me that I was in good hands. I appreciate the non-judgmental environment in bedside manners. I would recommend Southport Dental to all of my friends and family.

I’ve gone to several dentist offices and this one is by far my favorite. The staff is genuine and friendly. My hygienist, Katie, is thoughtful and attentive. She always seems to remember the things we talk about visit to visit and is great at her job. Dr. Mills also makes a point to really speak to me and my husband each time we visit and obviously takes great care of our teeth as well. I would recommend this office to anyone 🙂

Amazing experience. Beautiful new building, wonderful staff, and a very caring and knowledgeable dentist – what more could you want? I especially enjoy the TV in the waiting room and while in the Dentist chair:) This place is a well oiled machine from check in to check out. And I have to say my root canal was a breeze compared to the one I had several years ago. Thank You Dr. Mills and your great staff!!! I will be back.

Bonita S. from Indianapolis, IN (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Mills and his staff have eliminated my fear of dental work.  Dr. Mills and his staff are professional, friendly, highly skilled, and authentic people who help me feel they care about my experience.  Having avoided dentists for YEARS and feeling HIGH levels of anxiety about going, I now walk into Southport Dental with zero anxiety — even after multiple root canals last year!

Jody P. from Indianapolis, IN (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Mills and his staff are excellent at providing top quality dental care! They’re friendly, professional, and thorough during each visit. I sincerely appreciate Dr. Mills’ honesty regarding whether a crown is needed or not. I never have the feeling that he is looking to perform expensive procedures before they’re necessary. I highly recommend Southport Dental and several friends are now patients there!

Bobby E. from Indianapolis, IN (Source: Yelp)


Visit was enjoyable as usual which is uncommon for a Dentist. The staff ( especially Katie and Amy ) the ladies that take good care of me are sensational, love em!! Dr. Mills is awesome and personable, makes you feel like you belong there. Before going to Dr. Mills I never went to the dentist unless I had a real problem. Now I go to every checkup and cleaning and don’t mind going at all!. I highly recommend Dr. Mills, you will not be dis appointed.

I’ve been going here for over 20 years.  Dr Mills is great and knows what he’s doing.  Highly recommended!  Good luck getting in though, not sure he’s taking new patients.  To the negative reviews I see above mine..,, I’d like to say this.  Would you rather have a dentist who is conservative about your teeth and suggest when the work needs done, or would you rather have a dentist who might suggest he work on your teeth pre-maturely just to be billing your insurance?  Dr Mills has always made sound decisions as to when my teeth need repaired.  Also, as to his demeanor, I’d rather have a dentist concentrating on my X-Rays than my emotional feelings.  How about you try engaging in conversation instead of waiting to see if someone else does!

My very first extraction ever, and while a molar extraction is not at all pleasant, Lindsey and Dr. Mills were fantastic. His great humor truly helped my anxiety of feeling the pain and they were so informative and that made me feel at ease. I felt no pain whatsoever, just a tiny discomfort, which is completely tolerable. Even the day after the procedure, I am not sore or swollen and able to be back at work. If you are considering a new dentist, I highly recommend this doctor and staff.

Dr. Mills and his staff are attentive, caring professionals. Every single part of the process and experience is well-managed and seamless. Appointments, billing, office decor and location are all first-rate. Couple that with outstanding dental care delivered in a genuine, gentle manner, it’s official, I’m a Southport Dental fan!

Eric K. from Indianapolis, IN (Source: Yelp)


I recently had an issue with a tooth. I went to two different dentists in Carmel and they both wanted to extract and sell me an implant. Not covered under insurance of course. I had the extraction and implant scheduled when someone told me to go see Dr. Mills and his team at Southport Dental. I called and they got me in right away to look at it and try to help. Dr. Mills said he wanted to do a root canal on it because he thought it could be saved. And it is covered by my insurance! So I scheduled it with them and the process was so smooth! I am extremely anxious when it comes to dental procedures. Dr. Mills and his staff went so far out of their way to ensure my comfort. I could not be more pleased with my interaction with Southport Dental and I will definitely be back! Thank you Southport Dental!

I can assure you if you are looking for a new dentist Dr. Mills is the one. Personally I am very picky. Since moving up here years ago, it took multiple dentists till I found Dr Mills through word of mouth. He’s just awesome. His hygienists are awesome too which is also hard to find. He is a member of a dentist type of fraternity group that only accepts a small amount of dentists. I wish I could remember what the official name of it was but regardless you are getting a high-quality, intelligent dentist and supporting staff.

Emily W. from Scottsdale, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Dr . Mills is the best dentist out there as far as I’m concerned. Dr . Mills is the ONLY dentist I have ever trusted . He actually truly cares . He never pressurres you into expensive procedures if you dont really need them. & when you do need them , his office works with you to make sure you can get the procedure without leaving you broke. Aside from Dr mills being the best dentist in the state , he also has an incredible staff . This is the place to go for any dental needs, period.

Aaron W. from Indianapolis, IN (Source: Yelp)


Ryan Mills is a very cool, straight forward, down to earth dude and a great dentist. He is so laid back, talking about tooth extraction is like talking about your latest vacation. The staff is very warm and work well together. The new office lobby has great shots of Indy landmarks.

I was a nervous wreck about going to the dentist however a broken tooth that was causing a great deal of pain gave me no choice. I spent hours researching different local dentists and asking for recommendations and came to the conclusion that Dr Mills was the best and man am I glad. I had a root canal done and prior to I thought that he was just looking around in my mouth but little did I know he was giving me numbing shots. That is how good he is. I felt no pain what so ever. Everyone that I have come in contact with has been absolutely amazing there. I have many more things that have to be done to my teeth but my fear is now gone. I will certainly be back for years to come.
